Hardwood Trees for Planting Spring 2018


November 30, 2017

Fall is almost over. It’s time to think spring. Then think spring tree planting. The Green County Land & Water Conservation Department is offering 11 varieties of trees and three varieties of shrubs for landowners interested in planting next spring. The tree varieties are: Bur Oak, Red Oak, White Oak, Swamp White Oak, Sugar Maple, Butternut, Sycamore, Apple, White Pine, Tamarack, and Norway Spruce. Shrubs available are: Arrowwood, Highbush Cranberry, and Witch Hazel. The trees and shrubs are bare root, and range in height between 1’-4’, depending on species. The cost is $2.00 a tree, with a minimum order of 10 of one species and must be ordered in increments of 10.

Most of the trees and shrubs are native to the area, except the Norway Spruce and Apple. The species offered cover a broad range of soil types and moistures, from dry to very wet. This is the first year Apple, Norway Spruce, Arrowwood and Witch Hazel have been offered through the county.

Five foot tree tubes, root dip, including Mycorrhizal root dip, and nutrient packs are also available to order. Tree spuds can be “rented” for just a deposit. The tree planters are waiting to be rented. You can plant a lot of trees fast with a tree planter. Get on the planter schedule now.

Trees can be ordered by contacting the LWCD directly by phone and walk-in, or by ordering through the Green County website If you are unsure about what trees will work in your particular soil, have any questions about the trees or how to order, stop in or give the Green County Land & Water Conservation Department a call at (608) 325-4195. We will be taking orders until Friday, December 29th. Trees are scheduled for pick up April 19th and 20th.
